I just upgraded my laptop from XP Pro to Win 7 Pro 32-bit version and I need to install the Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack but the site and the installer say it is not compatible with this version of Windows. Do you know of any replacements or workarounds for this issue?

Have you tried to install with compatibility settings set to XP? –  MrStatic Feb 2 '10 at 13:39
    
The installer is an .msi file - I didn't see compatibility settings for the .msi file. –  rodey Feb 2 '10 at 13:48

Have you looked at the Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7?

Or have I missed the point of what you want?

It works with 2003 and 2008 - it say's so at the top of the page when you click on the link. –  rodey Feb 2 '10 at 13:47
    
You nailed it!! Also wanted to add that after I installed the software and completed the directions I had to reboot to get the programs to run. I didn't see anything about rebooting. –  rodey Feb 2 '10 at 16:46
